Question Anyone have this side effect with Vyvanse?

I have been under allot of stress lately and need to know if anyone taking this @ 30mgs..............

Has anyone noticed hair loss as a side effect? I have been on it now for starting month two.

Just curious......please advise..........I did not see this as being a side effect?

Thank you kindly.

Re: Anyone have this side effect with Vyvanse?

Randol,

Just FYI, Celexa is an SSRI antidepressant, similar to Prozac (though not identical). It's generally prescribed more for depression and anxiety than for ADHD, although using it in relation to ADHD is not unheard of, generally in cases where stimulants are not appropriate.

While it's not necessarily representative, my own experience with Celexa was rather horrific.

Re: Anyone have this side effect with Vyvanse?

Himmy, You should probly look into getting checked out, even though im not a expert,just a certified nurse, i really do thing you should talk to your Dr. about the hair loss, there is something going on in your system that doesnt add up. I hope i help with your probllem hun....take care and keep up updated.

Re: Anyone have this side effect with Vyvanse?

Himmy, I also did see your other post about your other problem and it seems you have alot to deal with which im sure is frustrating. As far as the Iron pill and the hair loss thing goes, i dont think the extra iron is doing anything to effect the hair loss but is helping to replace what your losing due too your bleeding. Your primary Dr. should do extra test to see what the problem is as far as the hair loss goes and as far as the hystorectomy goes,if you dont do it,it may hurt you more than you know if you dont go thru with it. Im not a Dr. so everything is just what i know about from my Nursing Assistant classes.
